My Sneakers does this a little too... and my other flat-faced cat snorts. I would take your kitty to the vet. What breed is she? I have two cats who have kind of flat faces, and sometimes they have trouble breathing. I would agree that it is probably a physical problem.
Zinc, did they do surgery for your friend's kitty with the elongated palate? My vet suggested that Godiva might have that problem and that there is a surgery they can do.
